Sensory loss/dual impairment

Dual sensory impairment (hearing and sight) refers to people who have both sight loss and hearing loss. It is sometimes also called ‘deafblindness’, though some people only use this to refer to more severe impairments.

We are familiar with caring for Clients who have one or both impairments.

People also vary in how impaired each sense is. Some might have more abilities in one sense than another. Everyone will have different strengths and weaknesses with their vision and hearing. Because there is so much variation, strategies for living with dual sensory impairment are different for different people.

We are confident that we can assist you with all your daily living needs and can support you in maintaining your independence both inside and outside the home.
